BRACHMANN
Tuxedo! F+W '18

By updating silhouettes with the introduction of sculptural sleeves, pleats and panels, the Tuxedo becomes more versatile and effortless. Through the interplay of deconstructing and reconstructing, Brachmann arrives at new details and shapes for infusing classics pieces with details and shapes from the Tuxedo. The clean,  razor sharp cuts confer an architectural expression to the collection that is further emphasized by twisted grain lines, detailed seaming and layering. The collection’s autumnal colour palette contains rich shades from bordeaux through ink blue to anthracite, adding depth and elegance to the collection. The fabrics made from natural fibres are luxury and vary from light weight merino wool, cotton and silk blends to heavy weighted cotton, textured virgin wool. Together with impeccable craftsmanship and a luxury finish they make for a high wearing comfort. By a synthesis of urban chic, cool, and minimalism the collections effortlessly transcends the border between formal and relaxed dresscodes, serving a seamless transition between day and night, job and party.

"Threesome" is a collaboration with fellow Swiss artists Manon Wertebroek and Christopher Füllemann. The three have been working together since January of last year, to set up the project that was now presented in Berlin as an exhibition. The end product can be understood as a "performative installation with a bit of fashion". Its parts have been disassembled and consist of clothing, photography and sculpture.

Berlin eyewear innovators Lunettes Kollektion and Julian Zigerli have paired up again for a special trio of intriguingly arty sunglasses made with an unusual technique -- matte digital printing on the fronts and temples. The collection complements the collaborative work "Threesome".

*KODAK PIXPRO 4KVR360°°*


january 2018

In the past few years, there´s been big steps taken on the action camera scene. 

 

 
LE_MILE_MAGAZINE_KODAK_PIXPRO_360_DEGREE_CAMERA.gif
 

The movie-makers are now getting more and more of a shake-up from the virtual-reality action camera producers. The VR action camera can capture a 360° scene, actually everything that is happening around you.

Kodak Pixpro´s 4KVR360 action camera hasn´t just a very long and out of the ordinary name but it also is one of a kind in its field of 360 degree cameras. You have full 360° view in 4K from only one smart package. The last 360° camera from Kodak had two cameras that were bolted together so both lenses were pointing away from each other. The 4KVR360 all in one smart package, has a significant resolution and spherical immersion. This makes the new 360° camera so preferably to its forerunner.

 

We´re glad we were there and had Kodak Pixpro with us... Kodak Pixpro, thanks for capturing moments with us, too

NADYA DZYAK
Pre-Fall 2018


january 2018

The beauty of French cinematography in 1970s and 1980s, and the use of fashion to tell stunning stories was the starting point for Nadya Dzyak this fall season.

Designer reached back into the past, drawing inspiration from such noted actress as Mireille Darc. She was Parisian fashion icon and ‘le grand amour’ of Alain Delon. This glamorous star played a modern, liberated woman, and found international fame in ‘The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe’ by Yves Robert. However, under the external playful beauty there was a deep and subtle inner world of Mireille. In addition, when creating the collection, Nadya Dzyak was inspired by the French interiors of the early eighties. Both the beautiful dresses from the new collection, and simple and at the same time luxurious eclectic rooms had been created according to all the canons of French effortless chic. 

Shooting was taking place in the apartment, which is located on the territory of the former hotel ‘France’, which existed in Yekaterinoslav before the revolution of 1917. The interior is made in the French style, and accurately conveys the Parisian spirit of the late seventies. Colors: chocolate, vintage gold, natural umber, carmine red, ocher, sapphire. The designer has developed unique floral and geometric patterns, which are transferred to various textures, such as silk, jacquard and organza. Traditionally, NADYA DZYAK collection has a lot of handwork, pleated patterns, geometric cutouts, asymmetrical silhouettes, combinations of different textures and proportions. Silhouette: waisted. Lengths: below the knee. Key items: signature transparent weightless dresses and blouses, done with by means of unique technique of manually pleated patterns layers.

PARIA FARZANEH
WE WERE ALL HERE AT ONCE


january 2018
 

Dedicated to Fereshteh Farzaneh and Hossein Farzaneh

Iranian born, Paria Farzaneh holds her cultural roots at the core of her brand DNA. For Autumn Winter 2018, menswear designer Paria Farzaneh draws inspiration from a fusion of memory, identity and profession. 

 
PARIA_FARZANEH_Fall_Winter_2018_Lookbook_LE_MILE_MAGAZINE_2.jpg
 

Combines these ideals with her Iranian heritage, results in a lavish array of artisan hand printed Iranian fabrics paired with simplistic British traditional shirting and tailoring materials. A mixture of sports and technical fabrics are sighted throughout and seen with a brazen colour palette and thick patterned fabrics. 

With focus on looking back at traditional Iranian clothing from the 1970s to present day, she pinpoints the bold local style and analyses how their working profession aesthetically impacts their daily dress. Merging this with inspiration from her London life results in a fusion of strong culturally fused pieces with a contemporary Western twist. Much like the life of Paria Farzaneh, these pieces have no boundaries and are layered together to create something unique allowing us to share and development new ways of dress. Statement silhouettes are a combination of traditional Iranian shapes and modern British technical pattern cutting.

Paria Farzaneh is conscious of the pieces representing the wearer in their unique way. When casting for shows and campaigns, care is taken to build looks upon the characteristics of the wearer and layers to create structured silhouettes accordingly. 

 


“I only use what I have been surrounded by my whole life, which all contributes towards my identity” - Paria Farzaneh

BAND OF OUTSIDERS
London Mens Fashion Week A+W '18


january 2018
 

Band of Outsiders’ key inspiration for FW18 is the idyllic winter-sport holiday. In tune with Band’s philosophy, the collection consists of a complete wardrobe for tongue-in-cheek everyday life.

 
BAND-OF-OUTSIDERS-FW18-LOOKBOOK-IMAGE-(3).jpg
 

As an ode to the great snowy mountains, this season’s main colours were named after iconic ski-resorts around the world; such as Verbier Grey, Aspen White, Telluride Red and Zermatt Beige. Print names allude to winter high life, like the Baring Polar Bear, the Band Skier, the Mountain Runner,
The Alpine Crosser, The Ridge Runner and the Jaeger Blizzard. Classic pinstripe gets twisted and turned in the Slope print, also found in Band’s newest collaboration, with Stutterheim, on their iconic raincoats. It returns as a gentle background to Band’s seasonal printed skiers.

A variety of lush materials fit for winter are present in this collection,with a big focus on outerwear and high quality wool knitwear, on which Band collaborated with The Woolmark Company and their sourcing tool ‘The Wool Lab’, featuring some of the best Merino wool yarns in the world. The unique
teddy bear coat from FW17 makes a booming come back, in polar bear white this time, with a red and blue belt for contrast.

Indoor winter times are enjoyed Band-style too, with the introduction of comfy pyjamas. Shearling coats are another first, as well as some great wool accessories like beanies and scarves. Printed and embellished denim and corduroy trousers match the warm, wool tops and coats perfectly.

Per Band staple, the tailoring is nonchalant, with Band’s now renowned jackets and ‘formal tracksuits’, redesigned for daily wear. The Band bomber reappears in new prints, and in versions with this season’s polar bear or nostalgic Alpine inspired Band logo on the back.

EDWARD CRUTCHLEY
London Fashion Week A+W '18


january 2018
 

Edward Crutchley returns to the London Fashion Week Men catwalk for his second season in an exploration of communication, looking to the past and the present for visual cues that transcend language and can still meaningfully convey ideas in our contemporary world.

 
Edward-Crutchley-AW18-(Credit-Helle-Moos)-12.jpg
 

Heritage, tradition and spiritually remain central to Crutchley’s work with this season seeing a fresh perspective on globalism and how this cultural melding has also created space for cultural expression and sharing. Looking at ‘Journey to The West’; one of the Four Great Works of Chinese literature and it’s modern revival in film, a tale of legendary pilgrimage out of one’s own culture and into the unknown, as popular today as it was in the 16th Century and strongly rooted in folk religion, mythology, philosophy and spiritual insight. Crutchley also references the piecemeal appropriation of Celtic mysticism as a touchstone for wider Western concepts of spirituality contrasted and counter-imposed against Grecian classicism.

Edward Crutchey have collaborated this season with emoji® - a playful and truly contemporary brand founded on the premise of a globally comprehensive visual language able to convey concepts and ideas across linguistic and cultural boundaries. emoji® is the owner and licensor of the registered emoji® trademark and more than 7,000 icons, patterns and stickers that are central to how we communicate today with direct links back through the ages to pictograms – the most ancient form of written communication used from China to Egypt to the Americas. This collaboration is a first for emoji® within the luxury market. Selecting icons from the emoji® library that support the narrative and storytelling around this seasons theme Crutchley contrasts what appears to be a classically inspired print story with flashes from the present day.

Continuing his exploration into contemporary artisanal craftsmanship this season Edward has collaborated with Kopenhagen Fur on two mink garments. Using a traditional hand cut and dyed intarsia technique with new techniques of leather strip insertion inspired by samples in Kopenhagen Fur’s Ateliers collection. Through a combination of Edward’s textile expertise and the exceptional skill of the contemporary furrier these pieces have pushed the limits of what is achievable with the media of fur.

This season’s collection explores the use of graphics across different textile media to create a contrast of texture and sense of richness. Looking at artisanal craft techniques and how these are still relevant to the future of contemporary fashion grounds this season’s mood in a tactile context. Crutchley expands upon an identifiable silhouette where the contrast of volume and drape creates space and movement beyond the limits of the body. Shapes take inspiration from cultures across the the world and through the ages; YSL’s ‘Scandal’ collection, chi poa, Les Incroyables,1960’s Mod dresses, zoot suits and the L.A. riots of 1943, TLC’s ‘Creep’ video and early 1980’s Armani and the beginnings of Power Dressing.
